DRAMA/FANTASY –  Audrey Hepburn created a sensation on Broadway in the title role, winning a Tony Award, as an ethereal sea nymph who falls in love with a handsome nobleman only to lose true love to the harsh realities of the outside world.

CPP Audition FAQs

Where are auditions?

  • Auditions will be held in the lobby of Kress Theatre – at 1102 Third St, downtown Alexandria.

How should I prepare?

  • All CPP auditions are cold read auditions, which are auditions where you come in with nothing memorized; you will receive the material on arrival at your audition.

  • Do a little research of the show to become familiar with the characters, time period, and story.

  • Be punctual and adaptable!

How does an audition work?

  • When you arrive, you’ll be asked to complete an audition form. The show director will assign parts to everyone and you’ll read through excerpts together.  The director will most likely ask you to read more than one part.

How long will it last?

  • About 1 hour.

When will the cast list be finalized?

  • Within 2 weeks of the audition date.

How much does it cost to be in a show?

  • Nothing!  CPP is a community theatre and we don’t charge a production fee for cast and crew.
